Vintage Camper Progress: Paint vs. Purchase

Vintage Camper Progress: Paint vs. Purchase

So many updates! Okay, let me start off by saying this “little project” is a lot of work. I psyched myself up before getting this camper and was completely aware of what I was getting myself into, I just didn’t realize how many man hours this thing would take. I am enjoying it though. I’ve … Continue reading

Vintage Camper Dreams Do Come True!

I’ve finally scored my very own vintage camper! We picked her up from Port Huron, Michigan two days ago. I can’t tell you how excited I am to update this gem. She was in awesome condition for being 40 years old! We could tell her previous owners took really great care of her. I plan … Continue reading

Busy, Busy, Busy… But I’m Baaaack!

Hello again, blogosphere! So sorry for my extended leave of absence, but I’ve been a busy little bee. Let me count the ways: Traveled to and from Cancun, Mexico. It was incredibly gorgeous and fun.

I’m shippin’ out, folks. I’ll be in the glorious Cancun, Mexico until April 4th! I’m so pumped.

I’m that kid) so needless to say … Continue reading

Chicago: So Much City, So Little Time

Chicago: So Much City, So Little Time

St. Patrick’s Day.. A ginger’s favorite holiday. Now its no secret I’m a fan of all things green (Michigan State grad, closet health food guru, Captain Planet wannabe, etc..) and I’ve had my fair share of exceptional St. Patrick’s Day celebrations, but this past weekend was definitely one for the record books. Instead of our … Continue reading

Barefoot Contessa – Where Are Your Shoes?

Barefoot Contessa – Where Are Your Shoes?

I’m not a big TV person, but I may just be a Food Network addict. When most kids were watching cartoons and Nickelodeon, I was tuned-in to Food Network watching Paula Deen throw pounds of butter into anything simmering on the stove. That being said, Food Network is now usually playing in the background when … Continue reading

Social Etiquette: Normal or Neurotic?

Alright, my mother and I have some pretty incredible women in our lives. Aunts, mothers, grandmothers, sisters, cousins and friends all influence us every single day even if they don’t realize it. My mother and I are starting to notice some funny “social etiquette” quirks that we’ve subconsciously absorbed over the years from said ladies. … Continue reading
